Another Great Writer Passes On

RIP Norman Mailer

The great American writer, Norman Mailer, passed away this weekend. I’ve only actually read one of Mailer’s novels (The Gospel According to the Son), but I’ve always been meaning to read The Quick and the Dead. Now it’s something I will definitely have to do (hints to relatives that are looking for Christmas book suggestions). I’ll leave you with Mailer’s Obituary from the International Herald Tribune.

  1. …when I heard, I honestly thought “Wha? he was still alive?”
    Shame though. I’ve only ever read “Quick…”, but a whiles ago and I’ve forgotten most of it ( happens a lot to me and books…which is a little disturbing…oh well…’Cest la…).

    But I do remember that I enjoyed it..
